WPBSA Supports Xing Pai Museum

Home » WPBSA Supports Xing Pai Museum

Next spring will see the launch of a new state of the art snooker museum in China as the Yushan International Billiards Culture City project continues to take shape.

Xing Pai first announced plans to develop Yushan as the world’s first ‘Billiard Sports City’ in 2017, with facilities to include a Billiard Sports Academy and the purpose-built Yushan Sports Center which hosted the World Open won by Judd Trump for the first time last November.

As well as investing in the future of our sport, Xing Pai has also recognised the importance of the deep history of billiard sports, with the creation of a unique museum which is due to launch in Spring 2021.

The WPBSA is proud to support this project and has committed to supply the museum with a series of replica trophies to celebrate the history of our sport.

Jason Ferguson, WPBSA Chairman said: “Snooker and Billiards has a long and fascinating history and we are very proud to have been involved in some way with this development in Yushan. We must thank and support our partners Xing Pai who have been at the forefront of this heritage centre and we look forward to the next phase when we return to China for our World Open.”

Xing Pai are keen to collaborate with independent snooker collectors who would potentially be interested in exhibiting their own memorabilia at the museum.
